Shou Mei is a very stem-y and leafy loose left. Caina says to steep 1tbsp for about 25 seconds, with all the stems and big leafs it's pretty hard to measure. It's actually a lot easier just to eyeball and take a guess, if you drink a lot of loose leaf tea it's not that hard to guesstimate it. To me it has a light flowery sweet flavor with little smell. I actually over steeped mine, for about 45 seconds witch gave it a light bitterness. I did this on purpose because I like strong teas and this is a very light flavor so to give it a bit of a stronger kick that's what I did. They say you can resteep about 4 times, however I can't say if that's true as I've only drank this one twice so far.
